The Geneva-headquartered private banking group has made a senior hire from HSBC France's economic research department.
Edmond de Rothschild has appointed Mathilde Lemoine from HSBC as its new group chief economist.
At HSBC France, Lemoine was head of economic research and market strategy from 2006 to 2015. She formerly worked in several French ministerial cabinets, including as an advisor on macroeconomic and tax issues to the prime minister.
Lemoine will assume her new role on 7 January 2016 and will report to Ariane de Rothschild, chair of the Edmond de Rothschild Group's executive committee. This publication has contacted the group as to whether Lemoine replaces anyone in the role but this had not been confirmed at the time of publication.
“Mathilde Lemoine’s arrival will help us reinforce our thought leadership in market strategies and fine tune our anticipations of macroeconomic shifts in today’s highly volatile environment,” said de Rothschild.
“The expertise provided by Mathilde Lemoine and her team will be essential in helping our staff and clients shape their investment decisions and benefit from international opportunities.”
Founded by Edmond de Rothschild in 1953, the group has been chaired by his son, Benjamin de Rothschild, since 1997. It provides a range of services including private banking, asset management, private equity, corporate finance and institutional and fund services.
